    Even though I knew we would get married, we had made other plans regarding it! About a week before he proposed, we had decided to book a trip to NYC and get married at city hall... nothing huge, we are pretty low-key! So when he proposed about a week after (like I said), I was shocked! I was not expecting an engagement or an engagement ring, we were just going to buy me a set! I am still getting a set to replace my ring (upgrade ya! haha) but this way is so much more fun!

        It's hard to say "be patient" to an expectant bride to be!
        We had been together for over 8 years when he proposed (together for 10 by the time our wedding rolls around grrr back to zero)
        I did know it was coming, but then I also talked my way out of hoping at the same time. When he did propose, I was still so surprised! I actually thought he proposed and didn't have a ring (thought it was spur of the moment for him and I also wasn't wearing my glasses AND he asked during siesta time).
        The whole point of my story is... no matter how much you are expecting, I think it is always a wonderful surprise! :)

            With FI and I, we had talked about getting married after we bought a house and moved into together and had gone ring shopping together. It was about 6months after we moved in together. He knew what kind of ring I liked, however I think the price of a ring had knocked him backwards. Life took over for us and we got really busy and we didn't really bring it up again for months.
            My 40th birthday came and went, Xmas and New years came and went. I just thought to myself he isn't going to ask and I knew we had spent a ton of money on our new house. In February just over a year after we had bought the house we took a vacation in Costa Rica.. huge vacation for us 2 and half weeks and we toured Costa Rica, it was amazing... Valentines morning the last day of our vacation, we're watching the sun come up on the beach in Tamarindo, so beautiful we walked to the edge of the water and he asked me to put my footprint in the sand next to his. I did and he asked me to close my eyeshe wanted to write something next to our footprints. I did and when I opened my eyes he had writen " I love you" and a heart surrounded our footprints. He was then on one knee infront of me, I struggling to get the camera out of his hands to take a picture of this little token of love... I was totally taken of guard and blown away... he asked and I did say yes!!!!!!

                I also knew it was coming before he actually proposed, I was happy and relieved that he proposed, but I wasn't completely surprised. The fact that I wasn't surprised didn't dampen the moment one bit!!

                  I knew it was coming because the ring store called our house!! He got it in April and didn't propose until the end of July!! It was three months of wondering if "this is it" everytime we went somewhere or did something "special". I was actually surprised because it wasn't at all how I thought it would be and he kept throwing me off course :)

                  Even if you know it's coming, it doesn't take away from the moment at all!

                    I agree that knowing it's coming doesn't make it any less special. heck, I still tear up every time I think about it.

                    Here is my ring:

                      Although my BF and I haven't gotten engaged yet, we share a bank account. It makes things really easy for me planning things financially, but it doesn't leave my BF with a whole lot of ways to surprise me. I"m thinking he has some tricks up his sleeve, and now I wait! He told me it's happening this year....I just have no idea when
